BrewDog To Open First All-Vegan Bar in London
BrewDog has announced it is turning one of the London branches of the multi-national chain into a totally plant-based venue.
The chain’s location in Dalston, East London, will be expanding the plant-based menu and eliminating all animal products in time for an October 14 launch.
The move is happening in partnership with Biff’s Jack Shack, a London-based animal-conscious junk food specialist.
Biff’s boast that it is “hell-bent on making the world’s filthiest, most indulgent vegan junk food”, and “on a mission to create innovative, playful and exciting food for plant-based folk and meat-eaters alike.”
The change was announced on the BrewDog website, where customers were told that the “hop hideout on Stoke Newington Road will have an exclusively vegan-friendly line-up of craft beer and food, making BrewDog Dalston the new beacon for those who rock a vegan diet in the capital.”
BrewDog’s Vegan Menu
The new menu will include new burger recipes, as well as wings and crispy fried jackfruit.
All of the BrewDog bars around the world provide plant-based options, which include the majority of its beers. Customers have long been able to enjoy Vegan Mondays at any of the chain’s venues, with a two-for-one offer on vegetarian and plant-based mains.
Plans to open the new venue were announced on the brand’s blog a few days before the arrival of the new Hybrid Burger — a mix of beef and animal-free Beyond Meat.
The new burger, which BrewDog created for environmental reasons, was met with a mix of praise and criticism on social media.
